My newest charging station
icharger 4010 duo with 48 volt power supplies

I ordered 4 digital volt meters that will eventually get mounted on the top near the power connetions to indicate 12,24,36 or 48 volt connections.

I was able to do this without compromising the case at all. It is still water tight.

Let me know what you think?

I saw the charger at the AMA show for $299.

I thought that was a good deal.
Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

The guy did say it was a show special price.

But it does show that it can be discounted.
After the newness wheres off I think it will be discounted several places.
Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

Looks sweet! I do have a few questions though.
Are those the 47a server supplies that are modded?
Do you have any active cooling for the supplies once they are fully enclosed?
Will this setup run on a standard 20a circuit?
What case did you use?

I too am looking into the 4010 charger. Not that I'll use the full 70a output but I like the balance current and the fact that I'll probably never need another charger for a while. My trusty old TP 820 has done me well but I'm due for an upgrade.
Thanks,

They are 44.5 amp power supplies

Do you have any active cooling for the supplies once they are fully enclosed?

This is my second enclosure like this and I position the outlet fans very close the the edge of the enclosure so that all hot air is exausted. I also install vents on the opposite side to allow air in.

Will this setup run on a standard 20a circuit?

This depends on what rate you charge at. Using the 48v power supplies and charging 6s packs at 15 amps on each channel I used a clamp on amp meter on the ac side and it read 7 amps. If this goes up in a linear fashior than 30amps per channel under these same circumstances would draw 14 amps. I have used the system to charge at 40 amps per channel at our club powered by a big diesel generator.

So far I love the charger

What case did you use? SeaHorse
